"We all have a million excuses to skip a daily run, but you only need 365 antidotes to change your life. And here they are, all funny, wise and warm. Lace up, girls!"--Kathrine Switzer, founder 261 Fearless, and author of Marathon Woman

"Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year motivates, inspires, and celebrates what it means to be a female athlete. It reminds and prepares us to be the best version of ourselves." ?Christie Pearce Rampone, former captain of the US women's National soccer team and three-time Olympic gold medalist

"Mina Samuels's Run Like a Girl 365 Days a Year speaks to the inner athlete in all of us. Both inspirational and practical, this book is a great companion on your athletic journey. Offering bite-sized prompts for thought and action, readers will learn, and laugh, and grow." ?Samantha J. Brennan, co-founder of Fit Is a Feminist Issue and co-author of Fit at Mid-Life: A Feminist Fitness Journey

"As an expressive boy full of joy, my older brother tried to stifle my light. He bullied me by calling me a sissy and saying, 'you run like a girl.' In life, hidden in the forces that pull us down is the energy to lift us up. In retaliation, I learned to flip and fly, moving faster than anyone around me. Mina brings new meaning to that phrase with her insightful and masterful book Run Like a Girl 365 Days A Year. Her physical, mental and spiritual journey align with both truth and humility. If running like a girl means pursuing this marathon called life with the same awareness as Mina, then in her writing she gives to all of us a fresh pair of running shoes." ?Christopher Harrison, Founder AntiGravity Inc.

"Run Like a Girl 365 Days A Year is a fitness roadmap for women. We are all athletes, there is no judgement, and there are no excuses. We just need to move and not look back. Mina Samuels's inspirational thoughts help keep us moving and feeling good about it." --Nieca Goldberg, MD, Medical Director Joan Tisch Center for Women's Health,

"It often feels like we're stealing---from our jobs, families, and responsibilities--when we take time to run. For the larceny of tending to our bodies and souls, Run Like A Girl 365 Days of the Year is an essential accomplice, reminding us daily that the 'stolen' moments may be the ones that matter most." --Amy Noelle Roe, author of Becoming Boston Strong: One Woman's Race to Run and Conquer the World's Greatest Marathon
